Today we are launching the biggest-ever crowd funding campaign to make a TV movie about the serial killer, abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell is the most prolific serial killer in American history, but almost no one knows who he is.
The grand jury investigating Kermit Gosnell’s horrific crimes said this:
This case is about a doctor who killed babies … What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors …. Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it. (Report of the Grand Jury)
Gosnell is serving several life sentences but the media basically ignored his crimes and his trial. They ignored the facts that emerged from the trial, like the fact that the babies he murdered suffered terribly. Here is what a neonatologist told the grand jury:
If a baby moves, it is alive. Equally troubling, it feels a “tremendous amount of pain” when its spinal cord is severed. So, the fact that Baby Boy A. continued to move after his spinal cord was cut with scissors means that he did not die instantly. Maybe the cord was not completely severed. In any case, his few moments of life were spent in excruciating pain. (Report of the Grand Jury)
The mainstream media or Hollywood don’t think this is a story, even though Gosnell killed more people than Gary Ridgeway, John Wayne Gacey, The Zodiac Killer and Ted Bundy combined. In a 30 year killing spree, it is thought he killed thousands of babies. And that wasn’t a national story?
“Reserved for media” — empty seats at Gosnell trial
But Jodi Arias, who was on trial at the same time as Gosnell for killing her boyfriend, just one person, was national news.
Hollywood think the Jodi Arias story is so important they have already made a movie about her, which has been shown multiple times on TV.
The censorship of the Gosnell story ends now.
We are raising funds for this movie through a revolutionary website called Indiegogo.
Indiegogo enables “crowd funding” for important projects.
But here’s the catch. We’ve set the budget. But if we fail to raise our target budget, Indiegogo will return all the funds, we will receive nothing and the film will never be made.
Indiegogo allows us to bypass the Hollywood studios and the usual funding sources for movies.
Hollywood never would fund a movie such as this.
We funded our last film, FrackNation, using crowd funding.
So far, the biggest “crowd funded” film of all-time is the Veronica Mars movie, a teen detective story that asked for $2.1m and raised $5.7m. We think the Gosnell movie is more important, and we think you do too.
So we are asking for $2.1m, and we are hoping to break the record and make history.
With your help we’re going to hire the best screenwriter, director and actors to make sure that the story of Kermit Gosnell gets into every home in America.
Please pledge right now.
We tell a lot about ourselves by the stories we choose to tell and the ones we want to cover up or ignore. Please help us tell this important story.
It’s a frightening testament to the power of the media that very few people even know about Kermit Gosnell: America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer.
This is your chance to bypass the media “information gatekeepers” to get tens of millions of Americans thinking about what happened in Philadelphia.
Please send a message that we don’t have to wait for someone else to tell the stories that matter, we can do it ourselves.
Please pledge right now and then please then get 10 friends to pledge.
Thank you so much for helping us make history.
At the LA premiere of our last movie, FrackNation
We’re known mostly for our award-winning documentary films, such as FrackNation, Mine Your Own Business, Not Evil Just Wrong, and The Search for Tristan’s Mum.
FrackNation was very well received by the critics. Here are just some of the positive reviews we received:
The New York Times said FrackNation was “meticulously researched….provocative”
Variety — the show business Bible – said FrackNation was a “briskly paced…mischievous pic.”
In January 2013, FrackNation made its TV premiere on Mark Cuban’s TV channel, AXS TV. It has since been broadcast also on PBS Colorado and Canadian Sun News Network.
FrackNation has been also screened all across U.S., Canada, Australia, Poland and the UK, and the film had special screenings at the Houses of Parliament in London and the European Parliament in Brussels.
